Q: Why should I transfer my web site? What does website migration entail?
A: The web site migration service offered by AIMS WILKINS SOLUTIONS is totally free of charge and involves transferring all your website files, databases and emails from your current hosting provider to your new hosting account with us. We’ll also revise all the configuration settings necessary for your web sites to be fully functional on our next–generation cloud hosting platform.Our techs are fully capable of moving just about any website. With years of work experience in the industry, they’re well–versed in the specificities of our web hosting platform, our Control Panel as well as all other commonly used Control Panels. For them, transferring a custom web app with many custom libraries is as elementary as transferring a simple WordPress–based blog.
Q: Web site migration seems like lots of work. How much time is it going to take?
A: While we can’t give you a precise time window, because there are plenty of variables, among them the size of the files and databases, the location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we will give our best to migrate your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (when the website content is not large).
Q: Do you require anything from me before you start moving my site?
A: Yep. We will need to have the name of the web site that you want us to transfer. We’ll also require a means to log into your present hosting account so that we can get the files pertaining to your website.
Q: My present hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I trust you?
Q: What about downtime? Will my web site be unavailable?
A: Nope. Your site will continue to be visible online during the transfer. Once everything is done on our end, we’ll notify you so that you can preview it and check for any problems. If everything’s alright, all you will need to do is modify your domain’s DNS resource records.
Q: Will my current web hosting provider find out that I’m leaving them?
A: While we move your content, your web hosting provider won’t be aware of the transfer at all. We won’t contact them in any way.
Q: Does it make any difference what platform my current hosting provider is using?
A: Yep. We support all regular Linux–powered web hosting platforms. We don’t support Windows–driven hosting platforms, because we do not provide Windows hosting solutions ourselves.We also don’t support proprietary web site building and management user interfaces like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
